Curle brimming with confidence after CUFC victory

Carlisle United manager Keith Curle says his team are now eyeing up who they can beat next after their 3-1 victory over Crawley Town.

The Blues gave the 5,600 fans who'd packed into Brunton Park plenty to smile about after making it 15 games unbeaten in the league.

Despite a 94th consolation goal by Crawley's Mark Connolly, goals from Ibehre, Kennedy and Joyce were enough to secure the three points to keep United second in the table.

Their next game is against St Albans City in the first round of the FA Cup on Sunday 6th November.

Fans attending the Queen of the South cup tie against Linfield applauded on the 39th minute of the game in memory of Ryan Baird.

The 39-year-old from Sanquhar was killed last weekend when the Rangers support bus he was travelling in overturned in Ayrshire.

Mr Baird was a Linfield and Rangers fan, and his family have travelled to Dumfries to watch today's match.

A minute's silence was also held at Palmerston Park before kick off at 1pm.
